SOLD. Java Batik beautifully rendered with stylized island flowers and butterflies. Batik is a textile tradition which dates back to the early 19th Century in the Archipelago of Indonesia's 17,000 islands.
Made primarily by women with a wax-resist process to achieve fine detail and rich color saturation. This beautiful textile likely would have been worn to ornament and indicate the wearer’s status. It is in excellent unused condition.
